Two suggestions:

1) Aluminum pieces. 1mm thick, 5mm wide, length 20..50 cm.
2) The cobalt-alloy wire orthopaedic surgeons use for
   fixing bones together (no kidding!), may be available
   from specialist shops or ask around the University Medical School.
   Very strong but ductile material.

Good luck
